While waiting for the garage to be available I have started designing a workbench.
Top is Paulk Workbench inspired. A torsion box bottom with casters to make it mobile. Cabinets with drawers in between. The table saw will built into the bench.
We shuffled placements at work. I now work a few meters to the right with a “stunning” view of Bergsgatan.
I recut the baffle and routed out the insets for the speakers. I also recut the pieces for the sides as I wanted to make the enclosure deeper. The box is partly glued up now. I keep my glue in a used mustard bottle.
I also remembered that the tweeter needs a separate enclosure and made a little round box to be mounted behind the tweeter. I should have used the router for this but it was tucked away so I used a couple of holesaws instead. The center hole will be used for the leads and then filled with hotglue.
I have finished the surround speakers.
Wiring thick cables of many thin strands together is a bit tricky. Here’s a neat trick I did to not lose my mind while burning my fingers off.
The sound have not changed much to the old ones. They are one speaker less and about 2/3 of the size. The sound is not as deep but given that they are going to play the surround channels they are well up to the task.
I tried playing music at full range with them and they sound a bit thin but still lots of detail.
